Is Follow Friday still meaningful to you?


Everyone loves a shout. That’s what Twitter’s all about.

When I jumped on Twitter about two years ago it seemed like the traditional #FF had more meaning than it does today. Mostly. There are still some who do them one by one, they give a reason and it has real meaning.

There are even some “group #FF’s” that are meaningful to me as I know the sender and I try my best to look up the unfamiliar faces.  I took some time last week to see who shouted me out. Some of the retweets were from people that weren’t even following me. I even waited a couple of days to see if they did in in fact take the time to follow me after recommending that others do. And none did. Maybe they didn’t find my feed that interesting but my guess is that they didn’t even look.

Not even the nicest, kindest and most caring person could possibly include everyone, one by one and give a reason.  I think Follow Friday needs to be reinvented or refreshed somehow.  Here one I sent out last week.

Sorry I couldn’t include everyone. I even had to do the titles in two segments as the editing program said it was outside of the known values in the program. Or maybe I need an editing lesson.

What are your thoughts on this whole thing? Has it lost its meaning? Is it just fine by you? Do you ignore the group shouts? Your turn.
